Re: jack stands

I usually jack the car up from under the differential and put the jack stands under each side of the axle

Re: jack stands

Depends on what you are working on. Normally I prefer the jack stands to be on the frame if I'm doing any serious work on the car. If I'm dropping the tranny I'll put the rear stands under the frame and the fronts under the front A-arms.

I jack from the differential on the rear and the front from the K crossover.

Exactly, get right under the pumpkin with the jack (unless you're using your spare tire jack to lift the car... Then use the lift point specified in the owners manual)
